"There is nothing more difficult to take in hand, more perilous to conduct, or more uncertain in its success, than to take the lead in the introduction of a new order of things."

~ Niccolo Machiavelli, historian and writer

Yes, They Can

The Council for Exceptional Children holds an annual "Yes I Can!" competition.

This year 27 students were selected for excellence in one of nine categories: academics, arts, athletics, community service, employment, extracurricular activities, independent living skills, self-advocacy, and technology.

You can read about each of these individual's accomplishments on the CEC website.

And yes, two of them (Jake Anthony and Darlene Jakubowski) were Canadian. Interestingly, both from British Columbia. Something tells me that might just be significant.

At any rate, it reminds me of the old adage ... "Never Give Up".
